Ogamdo Cafe?

Can someone tell me about this place?

The decor looks like something out of a Pippi Longstocking movie ...

  1. Glad you asked, because I never tire of pointing out that their specialty is reportedly chicken anuses.
    However although I work quite nearby I have never actually tried it.

      Really? Last time I had chicken anus was back in Taipei.

      Isn't chicken anus a Korean specialty?

      Maybe a field trip is in order ...

        Chicken Anus is on the menu. Did not order -- sorry hounds

          It's popular bar food. You'll find it at various drinking places in Koreatown and OC.

      2. It's supposed to be a Chinese restaurant though it's certainly doesn't have a full traditional Chinese menu. Here's a thread from last year that mentions it.

        1. This place really disappointed. We had the pan fried seafood chow mein and shrimp with lobster sauce and the food was so bland and average that I wanted to cry. And this place is not cheap, so the combination of below average and expensive made the whole evening an unfortunate choice. The decor is interesting I guess- if you think a hodge podge of tavern-like ambiance mixed with Christmas lights and nutcrackers in August is charming- that's not really why I got out to eat though.

          1. Any further reports on this place? My mom says they serve Korean-Chinese food that is very popular in the Korean community. Anyone try the ja-jiang-myun or tan-soo-yok? Do they have dry-fried chicken wings?

              Had the fried wings a few weeks ago, very tasty. Great ambiance here....

                Awesome -- I have a craving for this dish.

            2. i went once for a friend's grad school graduation lunch. her mom ordered everything, so i'm not sure what we were eating. but it all seemed like standard korean-chinese fare, except i thought everything was SO GOOD. it just seemed like typical korean-chinese dishes, but made better than average. but, it was a one time visit. and i'm pretty sure we didn't try the chicken buttholes.

                It is a little bit fancier(?) but standard Korean-Chinese fare with funky ambience.
                Fancier because quite clean and acoordingly priced. Quite comparable to Yong Gung(Dragon) in k-town.
